State of the District
Once a year for the past four years, Richland School District Two in partnership with the Northeast Columbia Chamber of Commerce invites community and business partners to an update on The State of the District. In 2016, the event was held on November 17 at the Richland Two Institute of Innovation (R2i2). The night also featured the dedication of R2i2.
The event featured comments from Chamber President Carl Blackstone, District Superintendent Debbie Hamm and Superintendent-Elect Baron Davis, 2016–2017 Teacher of the Year Kaitlin Manchester, School Board President James Manning, Education Foundation President Milton Wright and students Jenning Chen, Luis Rojas and Jordan Watkins.
